Frequently Asked Questions
Our names are Michael and Justin, and we’re the two gentlemen who own and run “We Buy Houses in SoCal.” We have additional team members that include closing attorneys, inspectors, and even realtors. Our “Company” page gives you a little more insight into who we are and what we’ve accomplished.
We buy houses in Southern California in any condition, and everywhere within SoCal. That’s really all there is to it. We wanted to bring about an alternative that homeowners and property owners could have if they couldn’t list their homes on the MLS.
Many of the homeowners we have worked with didn’t need to sell their SoCal homes in a hurry nor were they on a time crunch to do so. Most of them weren’t even trying to escape foreclosure. They either had a bad experience with a realtor they had worked with, or couldn’t find the right offer for their home.
We buy houses in SoCal no matter the condition that it is in, and it doesn’t matter to us about the location or the circumstances. All we want to do is provide a great service for you and your family.
Nope. We are simple fixer-uppers. We aren’t realtors, and we want to buy your SoCal home in straight cash, rehab it, and then sell it for a profit once it is done. All we want to do is give you the best offer available, to ensure that you will get your house sold quickly to us, leaving you stress-free!
Real estate agents don’t buy your home – they help you list the home on the MLS and then coordinate meetings between you and potential buyers. On top of all that, agents charge fees and commissions for working with them – which is something that we do not do.
We are two humble men who are looking to buy Southern California homes for straight cash, rehab them, and then eventually sell your home again for a profit. It’s really that simple.
We are not agents, and we actually cover the conventional expenses associated with selling a house like closing costs and inspections. We don’t charge you any fees.
It all depends on the situation you’re currently in. If your home is in near-perfect condition, and if you have the time to hold onto it before it is eventually sold – it might be better for you to go with an agent. We’ll also be here to counsel you on your options, and it will be 100% free!
There are obvious advantages to selling with an agent, especially if your SoCal home is in great condition, and we can help you find the right agents to sell your SoCal home quickly as well.
We just want to make sure that we can help.
If you’d like to find out how much we can offer on your home, go here.
It all begins with a simple conversation. Tell us about your SoCal home, and with the information you have provided – we will conduct a market analysis on your SoCal home, which will then be used to calculate and present you with an all-cash offer.
Once you accept the offer, all we need to do is simply transfer the money to you via check or wire transfer. It’s really that simple.
Not at all! There are zero obligations, and that form is just for information that we can use to create you an offer.
Many of the clients we work with have a lot of options of how they can go about selling their SoCal homes. Most of the time though, they end up working with us. We understand that it is a little scary giving away your information, but trust us – we value all of our clients and we can ensure that your information stays safe.
You’ll realize this when you get your offer and the subsequent amount of cash that comes after. If you don’t accept our offer – we will still do right by you and help you in the right direction.
Leave it all for us, you don’t need to clean a single thing when you sell your SoCal home to us. Whether it’s dirty floors, junk, or unusable furniture, we will clean it all up.
We have found that it is easier for people to move on when they can just keep what they love and move versus having to clean up everything after. We want to make your move as stress-free as possible, so don’t worry about what comes after, we love to clean!
Our prices are definitely fair. However, there is a large difference between a fair price and the current market value of your Southern California home. If your SoCal home is in really bad shape, then we take the market value of the home and subtract all of the repair costs needed. From there – that is the number we come up with for your offer.
In the rare cases in where we present market price offers, we may not be able to pay all cash for your SoCal home. It might be better to work with a realtor at that point (which we will also help you with).
We’re glad you asked – here’s how we do it:
We find the Market Value of your SoCal home
- We do our research by taking a look at all the homes near you that have been sold recently, generally within a mile radius of your home. We do so to find out what the home or homes have sold for, and we make sure that it is comparable to yours in terms of square footage, number of rooms, baths, etc.
- From there, we can determine the current market price of your home, if it were brought up to the standards that your area’s homes are selling for.
After we find the market value, we find the cost of repairs
- During our walkthrough, we’re going to be doing an inspection of your SoCal home, to see what needs to be repaired/renovated. Our contractors will be with us to give us a fair estimate of the costs, and we want to make sure we keep the costs down so we can give you a better offer.
After all of that is done, we prepare our offer to you
- After we have done all of the calculations needed, we will then present to you our offer on your SoCal home. We will visit you in person, to give a detailed breakdown of how we got to the number on our offer, and from there you get to decide whether or not you want to accept.
- Again, this is all free for you. There is no obligation to accept. But once you have accepted – you are one step closer to selling your SoCal home for cold, hard cash.
A lot. 🙂 All we do with these houses is simply fix them up, and sell them again for a profit. We love working with honest homeowners who are looking for another chance at life.
We want to do everything in our power to help people, and the best way to help someone is by giving them the power of money.
